I think it will be a very close game. Giants will be down going into the 4th quarter and Eli will lead them on yet another 4th quarter comeback. He set the record for 4th quarter touchdowns this season and I think the only way the beat Brady and the Patriots is for him to continue working the magic in the 4th.

Giants 24
Pats 21

Yes. I'm a Giants fan. I also despise the Patriots and would be rooting against them no matter who they were playing.

Ha! The Gals come thru in stellar fashion...good on ya both.

I will say that Mrs Tell is quite the Raiders fan, though, and always enjoys watching football with the Tell boys (she never got that daughter she always wanted...sigh). She'll be right there with us rooting for the Pats to drop the ball big time, just like JOTS would have it...

Hmmm, I don't think that's a set up for SDH, but...

On the rare occasions when I watch football, which is invariably with my dad/brother, I pick the town I'd most like to live in. This, just as invariably, has the value of setting up an entertaining dynamic, because they proclaim it a terrible leftie hippie town and bash it/me accordingly. (Some things never change.)

I did watch about 10 minutes of Eugene vs Madison over Xmas. I had a hard time picking that one, but went with Eugene because of the better weather and scenery. They were shocked, shocked, that I could like Eugene. They didn't like Madison either, but liked the REST of Wisconsin. I think they had some opinions on the football, too.

Ah, family tradition!

Hmmmmm

Lots to consider

1) I'm a Jet's fan
2) My Grandpa is a lifelong Pats fan (and will celebrate his 100th B-day next week)
3) I typically want the underdog to win

I predict I will make a huge bowl of Guac, drink some beer eat some of forementioned guac and watch what I hope will be a great game.

I seem to be (almost) alone in predicting a NE victory by a double digit margin, but I think Brady will have a much better day this time out. A Giant victory wouldn't shock me, mind you, given the roll they've been on lately,but they're not sneaking up on anyone this time (and they WERE beaten twice, solidly, by a very bad Redskins team).

I think it would be more interesting if everybody stated who they WANT to win, along with who they think will win.

From everybody I've talked to lately, I haven't found many who think their team is going to lose. Coincidentally, I hope the Giants win and also predict that they will.

Nice theory Bobby D, but I'm a Warriors and A's fan so those planets don't often align. I have the "wanting them to win" part iced.....it's the "BELIEVING they WILL win" and predicting such, that I find difficult.

I guess I could just sell my credibility down the river and predict the A's will win the World Series in 2012, but somehow I think the genius of that would be lost in the the idiocy.

Honestly, if Oakland made the WS I think they'd have a DECENT chance against the kids from Taipei.

Hey Flow--did I mention while sitting around lately taking it easy I've watched the 75 championship series with Rick B & co?

Great, great SWEEP, ya know? Fun to revisit those days (the year I saw the DEAD at three out of four possible shows, including June at Winterland and Sept in GGPark...good yr!).

I saw the "Reunion" series as well. I was 4 in 1975. NO GD shows for me that year. What was I thinking? The chicks would have loved me at 4. I was in the best shape of my life!

My dad started working in the GSW PR Dept. in 1976. Mom would take me to Saturday night games and by year 2 I was free to roam the arena. The "ramps" were always very fun at halftime. The Banjo Man would stand below and pluck while some of the East Bay's "finest" citizens watched from the ramps above. The smell of cigars, cigarettes, weed and spilled or swilled beer made quite an impression on me.

My ability to talk-shit on the court was learned sitting under the basket as a 9 year-old ballboy. This was the gritty 1970's NBA where there was still real contact, only 2 referees and very few cameras to capture any game-related violence. I mopped blood from the court on more than 1 occasion. Good times.

I was pretty good friends with Al Attles Jr. and Al Sr. was always a really nice man. Even long after my dad left the W's and I was working in the PR office he'd take time to talk hoops with me.

So that's what the 1975 World Championship reunion brought to my mind.

It's interesting to hear your perspective of that time. Because I have an older Bro(and his friends) who had interests similar to yours at the time, these stories are familiar. Thanks.

Hope the ol' back is feelin' better.

I will be in Raleigh eating at the Angus Barn with Mrs. Mando and a bunch of our friends from all over the country.

They have John Courage Ale on tap and a 20 ounce ribeye that melts on the fork. Sauteed mushrooms as big as a cow's eyeball, baked potatoes you could put a saddle on....

My guess?

Angus Barn - $220.00
Mando - full stomach

Giants take the lead with a late field goal and a game ending 4th down sack of Brady as the Pats are driving for the win.

I'm rooting for a massive earthquake where the field opens up and both teams get swallowed up and then the chasm closes up and we're done.

This time around its a lose-lose, at least last time they faced each other I had something to root against - an undefeated season for Tom terrific and his whore Randy Moss.

I love my team the Oakland Raiders,lifelong fan. When theyre done which is usually sooner than later ( although theyre so close it's extra painful )then I become a hater.Most teams fall into two categories, teams I dont care about and teams I want to lose. So it's kind of like politics. Except for my team I never ending up rooting for another team but more against. And I hold grudges. The " tuck rule" was a bullshit call that screwed my team from going to the Superbowl in a year they probably would have won. Everybody but Patriot fans know that was a freakin fumble. Top that with the cheating and the fact that I don't like ANY team winning that much (unless it's my team), I will of course be rooting against the Patriots as usual.

having said all that I think the Patriots will win 27-20
